We took the shell island tour. Not as many shells as we had hoped but what a fantastic, untouched beach. Wish I could have taken driftwood back on the plane. We saw dolphins, eagles and even a gator. Cap'n Doug was very knowledgable and first mate Chris is a great photographer, lol. I would suggest this tour for Anyone looking... More

The total excursion was 4 hours with 1.5 hours on the beach. Captain Rod made this trip truly awesome! He is very knowledgeable about the area and makes the history of the area entertaining. His wife is just as sweet. They are both locals to the area and seem to love what they do. I plan on taking my husband... More

Took our 2 kids on a cruise while on vacation in Myrtle Beach....they both LOVED it! We saw a pod of dolphins on the way out to the island. While on the island, both kids found beautiful shells. The water is much more clear than myrtle beach. Cap'n Doug drove the boat and was very friendly, funny & informative. Cap'n... More

Cap'n Rod was very well versed on the history of Georgetown. The 4 hour cruise was worth the cost 0f $33.00 each to... More
